Behind Evolutionary Trees: Mathematics and Algorithms in Phylogenetics – Montevideo 2019
Evolutionary trees are used in many domains, to reveal the function of genes, study the outbreak of epidemics, and set up inventories of biodiversity and its decline, among other things. Phylogenetic software programs for […]
Mathematical and Computational methods for Phylogenetics and Evolutionary Epidemiology – Havana 2019
Mathematical and Computational concepts and models are essentials in new developments of the evolutionary studies related to outbreaks of infectious diseases pandemics. Predicting, assessing and controlling potential outbreaks are key aspects of the worldwide […]
The phylodynamics of partner notification and contact tracing in HIV epidemics
We develop phylodynamics models and methods to study viral epidemics, in particular HIV. This new, trendy domain is in between usual mathematical epidemiology, typically based on compartment models, and phylogenetics. The models used in […]
Renewing Felsenstein’s phylogenetic bootstrap.
The phylogenetic bootstrap was proposed by Joseph Felsenstein more than 30 years ago. This method, based on resampling and replications, is used extensively to assess the robustness of phylogenetic inferences. Its usefulness, simplicity and […]
